    Please help me out, I'm search impaired. Looking for a thread from a month (6 weeks?) ago? Topic was lights, specifically green lights in Ohio. There was a link to Ohio motor vehicle codes showing that color combo was for ODOT only. Can someone point it out to me?

    So I saw a road commission truck the other night with an amber and green flashing to the rear. I was a good half mile back, and both were very bright. But dang if it isn't confusing trying to figure out what you're coming up to.

    Mark, I saw a news report on GR news station the other week about Kent Co. trying to get these on their trucks. But no mention was made about private contractors.

    Rentwood and Wyoming have them as well. I think they are confusing. With the KCRC one, it was on 131 and maybe I'm becoming color blind, but I couldn't tell if it was an accident that I was coming up on and should prepare to stop or what the heck was going on.

    For what its worth, I read an article about green lights, they say that you can see them better. Not sure what article I saw this in. I know alot of companies that make lasers for GUNS have green lasers
